Honey Chili Chicken

Sweet and spicy. But not TOO spicy. I thought this was a extremely flavorful dish. My mouth didn't know which flavor to concentrate on-the sweet honey, the chile powder kick, or the fresh cilantro! I honestly put a piece of cilantro on each bite...the flavors work together splendidly. O how I wish we were eating rice...that would make this dish an A+ instead of just an A!

Adapted From: P90X

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/8 cup shallots, chopped
1/3 cup honey, slightly warmed
1/8 cup sherry vinegar
1 /2 tsp. chile powder
1/8 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 tsp. cilantro

Coat a saute pan with cooking spray and place on medium-high heat. Add shallots and saute until tender.  Add honey and vinegar, spices, and broth to the pan. Bring to a boil and reduce to half. Transfer sauce to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour over chicken breasts and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Garnish with cilantro and, if desired, serve over rice.
